Occupation thru the 10th house

IMG_0489

The 10th house is the main house of career, public reputation and social leadership. The 6th house describes the kinds of duties we have to perform day to day. Traditionally, the 2nd house would show our family lineage which would have a strong influence on our main occupation at well. These are the karma houses, they answer the question: “What will I do?” I will go into more detail about these below, but before I do that I will just briefly go over some of the ways that the other houses affect your career since there are so many things to take into account for this important topic.

What we do is greatly influenced by what we believe. Some suggest that karma is the wealth of our dharma. What we do shows the value of what we believe (9th house). This tells us the importance of the Dharma houses (1st, 5th & 9th houses) in determining career. 1st house shows the foundation of our career – reputation. 5th house show’s the sudden and unexpected events in our career that happen by circumstance (right time, right place). We seek sanctuary from our careers in the 9th house; however the beliefs and higher knowledge of the 9th house forms the foundation of the 6th house service we perform.

Most people who are concerned about career are also concerned about gathering some fruit from that career, so, we have to consider the kama trine (3rd, 7th & 11th houses). This is what motivates us. In the third house we are willing to leave our comfort zone and make an effort to appease our inner narrative. Although the 3rd house does not ring with the light and the truth of the 9th house, this inner narrative and the stories we tell ourselves are of great importance in our lives regardless of their truth or falsity. The 3rd house also shows the obstacles we will face in our career. The 7th house shows the way we honour our agreements and our negotiating style and is especially important for business people, counselors or others whose careers involved contracting their time or negotiations. The 7th house also shows our reputation with our career. The 11th house shows the value of all that 10th house activity as well as our connections in the marketplace.

Within the moksha trine (4th, 8th & 12th houses) the 4th house showing foundation education is the natural partner to your career. This shows the basic education necessary to maintain your position in society. The 8th house show gain from that career and position in society including bonuses, perks, health benefit plans and the like. Of course it’s also famous for hidden and unearned wealth. The 12th house shows how our a career allows us to reach out to the world. This shows the mentality of our boss or the company we work with.

This page has information on the 10th lord in the houses, the planets in the 10th house, the Navamsha of the 10th lord & miscellaneous rules relating to the 10th house.
